Our reputation as an industry leader is built on a culture

of cooperation, not dictation.

We listen, we’re flexible and innovative,

and we put our

clients’ best interests first.

JRS Engineering provides roof design and consulting services throughout the Pacific Northwest. Since the founding JRS in 1998, we have become a leader in the roof consulting field. Our goal for all projects is to work with property managers, owners, and contractors to cultivate high-performance, aesthetically rich buildings that deliver greater durability, energy performance and value to our clients.

JRS combines a thorough knowledge of building science with a practical understanding of the construction process to implement technically-sound, cost-effective roofing solutions. We recognize that each of our clients has unique needs—and we know that practical and economical solutions are required to maintain the high standards for which we have become known.


Our goal is to provide practical and technically sound solutions to our clients

through hard work, excellent communication and simple common sense.





We build trust

by conducting

business ethically and conscientiously. We

strive to build excellent relationships with

owners, architects and contractors in order

to help ensure that the finished product

meets project expectations.

We ensure quality

in everything

we do through comprehensive peer

review and keeping up to date on

building science research, codes and

construction methods.

We believe that dependability

is what makes a building envelope-and a company-

great. We want our clients to feel confident that our building envelope design will hold up to the

rugged requirements of our west coast climate.


We place a high priority on pursuing sustainable design and construction

practices. Our LEED® accredited professionals know the most effective ways

to incorporate environmentally conscious, socially beneficial, and durable

building practices into your project. As natural resources continue to become

scarce and operating costs increase, better thermally-designed and built roofs

and building envelopes will become imperative.
